i geuss its worth a shot, i am not sure of warranty with these companies. since they know the punishment we input on these cars. they may ask for proof of purchase and stuff. or they may be very good to deal with, and give you a new one with no problems.

hi guys

i just moved up to open and i have to say the transition from kyosho to mugen wasnt that hard working on the car is a little hard than the kyosho i went to a resonablly big meet it aus and went really well for the first time i ever drove open i am still learning the car but the field i was in was really fast to say the least.

the only problem i am have is tyres chunking even when you dont go of the black stuff i have tried a few thing to stop this one of my mates suggested lifting the rear top arm would thgis help the arm is at lowest point possible..

cheers
ratty

Is your body touching at all with suspension movement it can cause chunks.
What tyres are you using and on what surface - stones will cut foams

lifting the rear arms? this will change the roll centre, you don't need to do such a drastic setup change to stop chunking.

the best thing is tou round the edges of the tyre, but also, do not run the foams straight out of the pack. my recommendation is to;
1) round the edges,
2)cut them down to 63mm i don't use them any larger as it really stuffs up handling, and they are just too big

even hitting curbs etc will make them chunk, so going over a ripple strip sideways (ie slidding into a corner and hitting a ripple strip) will make a tyre chunk if the outside edge is not rounded. don't be afraid to round it of a fair bit.

Use a file on your tyre truer I've got one that is a rasp/file combo which works well.

If your pins are coming loose, its an assembly issue. Most MTX4`s are pretty snug all around, i dont see how the pin could come out, unless your not aligning your pullys up correctly, a pic would be nice

Could you not rig up something to simulate the effect of a truer spinning to just file them?

Safest way to do it is on the truer.
